Henry Rollins and the IAVA (Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America)
http://www2.iava.org/o/436/t/8492/tellafriend.jsp?tell_...

Rollins did the voice-over for the video. They're trying to get 4,000 views by the 4th of July. Henry Rollins says "Watch the vid."

4. One of the few who is the real deal.
I don't respect many people in this world. He's one of the ones I do.

7. He walks it like he talks it.
and I dare any fucktard FReep to get in his face. He'll be polite and point out the facts...and if they persist with childish behavior...well I have never heard him have to fall back on brute force...his presence deters it.

10. When they interview him about music & pop culture, I always want to hate him...
Edited on Wed Jul-01-09 12:31 PM by Dr Fate
...for being such a muscle-necked know-it-all.

Problem is, he is usually on point! I'm thinking specifically about the Punk documentary from a few years back (I forget the name)- but they always have his commentary on the VH1 type shows too...

What impresses me is his wide range of music appreciation...

11. Yeah, Henry Rollins looks like a buff Jarhead who wouldn't have much in his head
Oh, but what is in that man's head is just amazing. Good new partnership for a good long term liberal.

12. We other Veterans?
What are we, chopped liver? Oy!

I once shot Rollins 5 times & he never even flinched. Twice in the back of the head, those aren't his eyes you're looking at, they're hollow point bullets :)
